Philadelphia Flower Show has '60s vibe with 'Flower Power'

From a floral recreation of Woodstock to an exploration of the optical effects of psychedelia, the 2019 Philadelphia Flower Show reinterprets 1960s counterculture in a spectacularly trippy way.
This year's show, aptly named "Flower Power," opened on Saturday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and will run through March 10.
The '60s vibe continues inside with a "Groovy Garden" of pressed flowers, a wedding scene from the Summer of Love and a garden that recreates the view from the Woodstock performance stage. Visitors can learn to arrange flowers in themed classes that include "Mood Ring," ''Lava Lamp" and "Sit In."
The mood was set on the opening night with a dance party celebrating — what else? — Beatlemania, featuring a Fab Four cover band.
